We Have No Pass-Rush Or Secondary

186 posts in this topic

Completely agree. Some people over think things. This playing it safe crap is sickening. You cannot win a super bowl going bpa every single pick. You end up with 3 first round rbs 2 first round qbs and so on. When do you address the problems with your team???

Naw its only 3 first round LBers, and first round 2 RB's. I hear D-Will is getting a little old. We may need to replace him soon.

people poo their pants and slit their wrists over the draft every year on this board.

I can see why this looks like overeaction to you. I've been on the other side I know. We are talking about the last seven years of first round picks. In a vacuum each pick doesn't look bad but together you are gimping the team by not building more important areas like pass rushers, and corners, while tying up premium resources like first round picks on negilble positions while tying up a lot of money in those postions also. It is stupid to build the team that way. Elite QB, Elite Pass rush wins.

Those people who talk poo about who we draft are morons. Rivera isn't stupid, he's put together great defensive squads in the past with barely any talent! now that the man has the opportunity to fabricate an entire team, let the man do what he does best. If yall really want to draft a Darius Butler 2.0 in the 2nd round then be my guest and go play madden. We already have a Darius butler who has the skills to be good under Rivera

Those that are adept enough see that our defense isn't in that bad of shape

I guess we see things differently. 2008 Brayton played well so noone cared, but noone wanted Johnson gone, not really. 2009 Majority of board wanted him to start over Brayton.

There were probably 50 threads addressing how Johnson was nothing more than a rotational DE and we needed to trade up and draft Derek Harvey. The tide started to turn in 2009.

I didn't see it that way. It's the way the majority of the board felt.

i distinctly remember people shitting on james anderson and charles johnson here. also a healthy contingent who didn't like the beason pick because we were supposed to select greg olsen that draft, he was undersized, injury prone, another glassjaw like morgan, etc.

i don't listen or care anymore. i watch the highlight videos and wait for training camp and the subsequent reports.

I'm excited as fug about Rivera .. but he's only been through one "real" draft

No one knows how he will be viewed as a coach 10 years from now

that being said .. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt for now

    • Is this dude a real life person or an alt of @GOOGLE JIM BOB COOTER that is a living joke exemplifying the white culture thread? 
    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles (35.6 MPG). Then Big Al had 42 in 2013 (35.0 MPG). Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.    D12 will be a beast this upcoming season!
